December Challenge- Holiday Themes

16 posts in this topic

Steve and I have decided on the theme for this month because...well it just seemed like the right topic. Holiday Themes, that can be whatever your imagination wants that to be.

Remember to please read the guidelines located HERE We had some issues last month with not using photos that where taken in the month of the challenge. We encourage all to share photos, it is the photo sharing board. But if your photo doesn't follow the guidelines for this thread post them in a different post! And remember ONE PHOTO only! This is the only fair way to do this for members that elect to participate.

This should be a fun and easy challenge for any and all! Point and shoots, fancy cameras, cell phones any thing that can take a photo of a holiday theme. Good luck and Happy Holidays!

I can hear the peace and quiet. Nice one Jonny.

Merry Christmas to the contributors and the watchers on here at Photo Sharing. I have really enjoyed this board in 2008.

This is an ornament on our family Christmas tree.

Hello all. I'm new here and I've enjoyed what I've read and seen in your photography forum. I'm from just north of the border in Canada, and I often take the short drive down to photograph the Superior north shore. The beauty is breathtaking along the shore. The seasonal changes make it a never ending photographers dream. Anyways, here's a shot from a couple of weeks ago just a few miles south of Grand Portage MN. Happy Holidays to all....

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
